Government Intervention

A Room of Recalled Items

Jonah and Amy are searching for a secret entrance in the back of the store so that Amy can save a video game that was released earlier in the day. She and Jonah come across a room of previously recalled toys and snacks. One of the reasons for government intervention in markets is based on paternalism, in which the government believes they know what’s best for its citizens. Governments also intervene in markets if they believe there are health and safety risks.
